A new searchable clinical trial mobile application for oncology healthcare professionals launched by Eli Lilly and Company allows healthcare professionals to search oncology trials that are enrolling new patients. The app searches by disease state, the molecule being studied, the study phase, country, state and keyword.
The app is available forApple’s iPad and iPhone, as well as RIM’s BlackBerry and Google’s Android platforms.
Because the mobile app provides details on all global oncology trials, the app’s functionality also provides a mechanism for the healthcare professional to contact Lilly Oncology for additional details on its trials, as well as a third-party contact for the non-Lilly clinical trials.
“Lilly Oncology created the Clinical Trial Resource mobile app to offer cancer care professionals an easy way to search for and identify details about all global oncology clinical trials ? not just those sponsored by Lilly,” said Anne White, senior director of portfolio management with Lilly Oncology. “The information will enable physicians to provide the most current study information ? quickly ? to patients who may be interested in participating in a clinical trial.”
Lilly Oncology also launched a new oncology web resource with detailed pipeline and potential cancer and supportive care molecules.
Specific information about each medicine includes illustrations of the target pathway and, when available, video of the pipeline compound’s method of action. “This new website offers healthcare professionals immediate access to detailed information on our diverse oncology pipeline,” added White. “We hope that this will foster not only greater awareness of our potential medicines, but also spark innovative collaborations that ultimately change the world of cancer care.”
The new website also offers directions for downloading the clinical trial app.
